This fanfic uses the: Timeline of The Soviet Universe.

Brief History:

August 10th, 2017- The W-0 Unit, in conjunction with Kaname Ohgi's resistance cell, attacks Prince Clovis la Britannia's laboratory in Osaka, Area 11/Japan after the KGB learns that he (Clovis) is doing human experimentation on living people as well as holding the Code Bearer: CC prisoner (President Kōzuki owes CC for what happened back in 2006 and besides Clovis's human experimentation project pisses President Kōzuki off). Both Kaname Ohgi's resistance cell and the W-0 Unit manages to liberate the lab and rescues CC, however the operation goes wrong thanks to Shinichirō Tamaki, forcing Ohgi's resistance cell/the W-0 Unit to hastily evacuate Shinjuku (the original destination point) before the vehicle carrying CC reaches the Ghetto. Later Britannia unveils the seventh generation Knightmare frame: Lancelot. With the combined Japanese/W-0 counterattack the Lancelot is disabled however the pilot Suzaku Kururugi is spared only because of incoming reinforcements. Later, Lelouch manage to sneak into the G1 and forces Prince Clovis to call a ceasefire. Lelouch also learns the full extent of Code R from a Geassed Clovis. After Lelouch is done with Clovis, he executes him along with General Bartley.

August 11th- 14th, 2017- Lelouch leads undercover Spetsnaz forces in a raid on Clovis's lab in in Osaka. The raid is ultimately successful. With the lab under Soviet control, the true horrors of Clovis crimes are revealed. All individuals used as lab rats are set free including a female Chinese geass user named Mao. Afterwards Lelouch returns to basecamp along with the former lab rats. Plans are then made to expose Code R and the Shinjuku Massacre on international television, however they don't know how they'll go about doing it without revealing they invaded Britannian occupied Japan (however Clovis's crimes are exposed to the Soviet people). During this time Nunnally is visiting Lelouch at base, While there she runs into Mao.

After discovering how depraved her brother Clovis really became from Mao, Nunnally throws up and officially disowns Clovis. The shock is so sever that she breaks her father's geass and regains her eyesight. Lelouch is shocked but embraces Nunnally in happiness. He then proceeds to tell his friend and family (those he considers family) the good news. After finding up about Mao's cellular degradation, Nunnally convinces base personnel to crate a stable clone body and transfer Mao's consciousness into the clone. The process isn't easy. The Soviets only manage to salvage the genetic markers that combinate into Mao's eye color, height, voice and physical appearance. They combine them with Fallen Angel DNA of Nunnally's bestfriend/lover Mittelt (whom Nunnally called in and asked her permission). After the successful procedure, Mao quickly grows attached to Nunnally and from then on vies for Nunnally's attention. Surprisingly, Nunnally asks if Mao could attend School with her in the Soviet Union. After contacting President Kōzuki, there is some discussion. However in the end President Kōzuki agrees.

August 15th- August 19th, 2017- Suzaku Kururugi is arrested under false charges of murdering Clovis. Orchestrated by Jeremiah Gottwald and the Purist Faction. The next night, Kururugi is paraded down Fifth Ave of the Tokyo Settlement before his execution. During this time, Under the guise of Zero, Lelouch (with Kallen and Kaname Ohgi's help) uses a car disguised as Clovis's private transport. After this Lelouch exposes both the Shinjuku Massacre and Code R as well as the Purist Faction's plot to use Kururugi to destroy the Honorary Britannian System on international television. Once Clovis's crimes are exposed all hell breaks loose. Lelouch uses the fake poison gas container to escape with Kururugi and Kallen. Despite the truth being revealed, Kururugi declines Lelouch's offer to join him.

With Clovis exposed, the USSR initiates sanctions against Britannia before officially going to DEFCON 2. Knowing this, the Britannian government goes into damage control. Emperor Charles goes a far as to throw Clovis under bus to save Britannia's ass. With war immanent, Britannia offers concessions to the Soviet Union. The Soviets accept and lays out said concessions:

1: Britannia is to pay for the reconstruction of Shinjuku Ghetto with the entirety of not only Prince Clovis's bank account but the bank accounts of all those responsible for the massacre as well (living and dead).

2: All Japanese are allowed into Ashford Academy and other Britannian operated schools regardless if they are Honorary Britannians or not.

3: Britannia is forbidden from launching another genocide against the Japanese people or else the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact will declare war.

4: The perpetrators of Code R are to be arrested and tried as criminals under international law on international television. Afterwards if found guilty, they are to be executed for human rights abuses.

5: The Soviet Union will annex the entirety of Shinjuku Ghetto and turn it into an overseas territory.

6: No Britannian is to step foot in Shinjuku Ghetto unless they are directly authorized to be by the Soviet Governor-General of Shinjuku. If any Britannian is caught entering Shinjuku unauthorized (depending on the situation at hand), the USSR will declare war on Britannia. If unavoidable, The Soviet military is allowed to engage any Britannian and all forces militarily so long as their is no other options left. All engagements must be officially documented via video and audio and submitted to the Government Bureau in Tokyo as well as publicly broadcasted across Area 11/Japan.

With no other choice, Britannia agrees to abide by the concessions. Celebrations across Shinjuku as well as Area 11/Japan, the USSR and the rest of the free world lasts for weeks after this. With the papers signed, Soviet troops as well as engineers and construction workers flood into Shinjuku to the cheers of the populace of the now former ghetto. Because of her brother's influence, Rias Gremory becomes the Governor of Shinjuku.

August 20th, 2017- After conquering the Middle Eastern Federation, Cornelia li Britannia is ordered by Emperor Charles to become the new Viceroy of Area 11 along with Euphemia li Britannia as Sub-viceroy. Delayed by the court, Kururugi misses Euphemia escaping the Government Bureau. Once out on the street, Euphie accidently bumps into Kallen while she's out grocery shopping. After a short conversation, Kallen takes Euphie sight seeing (once her shopping is done). At the end of the tour Euphie asks Kallen to take her to Shinjuku. With some apprehension, Kallen agrees. Meanwhile Jeremiah Gottwald and the Purist Faction exploit a gap in the Soviet security net to infiltrate Shinjuku (Shinjuku isn't fully secured yet). As soon as Euphie and Kallen reach Shinjuku they're stopped by Soviet Military Police. To keep Kallen's cover, The MP's hold Kallen and Euphie up at the checkpoint until they are given the all clear by Rias.

Once past the checkpoint and in Shinjuku proper, Euphie is instantly horrified by what Clovis did. A while later, they come across two Ashford Academy students glorifying the massacre (they exploited yet another gap in the security net). A few minutes later, several Japanese men lead by Shinichirō Tamaki show up and begin arguing with the brats. The argument gets so bad Euphie snaps and slaps one of the assholes across the face and demands they apologize.

Both thugs spit in Euphie's face and call her and Kallen Number Lovers. However due to being both outnumbered as well as being spineless cowards, they run away after the Japanese finally had enough. However they don't get far because Soviet MPs surround and arrest them. After this, Euphie apologizes for her countrymen's abhorrent behavior. At this point they hear an explosion coming from an old stadium, witch attracts the attention of the Soviet military. Soviet Knightmares and gunships are dispatched. Meanwhile concerned, both Euphie and Kallen race to the stadium.

By the time they get there, they discover Gottwald surrounded by members of the Purist Faction trying to kill him. Not long after this Soviet forces enter the stadium. The Purists surrounded on all sides, prepare to hold their ground while the Soviets demand their surrender. Unflinchingly, Euphie runs between the Soviets and the Purists to try to resolve the situation. At the exact same time, enraged at being ordered to surrender by "Filthy Commies," the leader of the mutinous Purists, Lord Kewell ignores the direct order and blindly throws a chaos mine at the nearest Soviet Knightmare (and unknowingly, directly at Euphie). Seeing Euphie in danger, the pilot of the nearest Soviet knightmare disregards her own safety and races in front of Euphie and activates her Knightmare's shields. The mine activates and sprays hot lead at both the Knightmare and Euphie. Luckily for both, the shield protects them.

Enraged the Soviets are about to open fire, however Euphie interrupts by walking up to the enemy knightmare and proclaims who she really is. Gottwald instantly recognizes Euphie and verbally confirms that Euphie's telling the truth. Shocked and wide eyed, everyone stands down. Euphie then turns her to her savior and politely asks the pilot to exit her cockpit. After some hesitation, the pilot does so. The pilot is revealed to be Eris Kschessinskaya of the Glinda Knights. After Eris walks up to Euphie and shakes her hand, the two have a brief conversation. After this Euphie turns to Kallen (who by this time has reached Euphie's current location). Euphie apologizes for keeping her identity secret, however Kallen waves it off and tells her that she understands and that she keeps her own secrets.

After this, Euphie orders the Purists to leave Shinjuku under the direct supervision of the Soviet military. As for the two Britannian students, after a lengthy interrogation, are set free and returned to the Tokyo Settlement. Luckily war is averted, however Emperor Charles along with his son Schneizel el Britannia begins to plot to instigate a war between the Soviet Union and Europa United. As well as start a Britannian/European war. Schneizel contact's his puppets in Paris for the preparations (including the EU's leader: Marek Conrad). Meanwhile Cornelia li Britannia arrives in the Tokyo Settlement demanding Zero's head on pike.

August 20th-December 20, 2017- After pleading to allow her to attended Ashford Academy after noticing Kallen's Student uniform, Cornelia relents and allows Euphie to attend with two bodyguards from her battalion: Marika Soresi and Liliana Vergamon. On her first day, Euphie runs into Lelouch. Over joyed, she hugs him and asks him what the Soviet Union is like and how Nunnally is doing. Lelouch tells her that life is better in the USSR than Britannia, he further explains that despite not being a Utopia, people are vastly more free and have by far superior living conditions than those in the ether the Britannian occupied colonies or the Chinese Federation. Lelouch then takes Euphie aside and quietly tells her that he along with Nunnally vi Britannia, Claire li Britannia and Marrybell mel Britannia defected to the Soviet Union. Not only that but are officers in the Soviet Military (excluding Nunnally). These twin revelations shock Euphie to the core. With eyes down cast, Euphie asks if he, Nunnally Marrybell and Claire hate her and Cornelia for abandoning them. Lelouch shakes his head and tells her no, however they aren't fond of what Cornelia has become. Euphie hangs her head and can only nod. She promises to say nothing to Cornelia or anyone in Britannia.

Meanwhile, Lelouch's rebellion (under the guise of Zero) goes into full swing. There are many battles that both succeed and fail (especially after Lelouch (as Zero) officially forms the Black Knights during the Kawaguchi Incident. During this time Lelouch slips up and inadvertently causes Euphie to begin investigating who Zero truly is). The battles of particular note are: The Battle of Saitama (success), the Battle of Narita (pyrrhic victory) and the Battle of Port Yokosuka (moderate victory). During the time Kyoshiro Tohdoh is captured, Euphie is forced to chose her personal knight by Cornelia. Upset, Euphie calls Kallen and asks for her advice. This is right in the middle of Kallen and her Fallen Angel girlfriend/lover Raynare having sex. After Kallen picks up to phone and learns who's on the other end, She asks a crying Euphie what's wrong. In tears, Euphie tells her of the situation (Euphie and Kallen are best friends by now. Unknown to Kallen however (at this time) is the fact that Euphie has fallen in love with her (to the ire of Nina Einstein). Kallen then proceeds to tell Euphie to meet her at Ashford and that they will discuss the entire matter together.

After hanging up, Kallen tells her girlfriend what's going on. Concerned, Raynare asks to join in on the conversation. After meeting up, Euphie, Kallen and Raynare discuss what to do and go over the candidates Cornelia chose for Euphie. After several hours, Charmelle Finlay is chosen as Euphie's would be knight. The next morning Charmelle is interviewed by Euphie with the assistance of Raynare and Kallen. After four straight hours, Euphie approves Charmelle as her personal knight. Later Lelouch discovers that there will be an important nobleman from Britannia arriving at Shikine Island. Suzaku Kururugi and the special core are dispatched to the island. It's here Euphie meets Kururugi for the first time.

They strike up a friendly conversation initially, however just after she asks Kururugi what he thinks of the Black Knights and Zero, she discovers his true colours. Kururugi sneers at both the BK and Zero and states they are lowly terrorists and "That they shall be brought to justice eventually!" before going into a tirade on his bizarre and naïve outlook on Justice. No longer able to stand Kururugi's stupidity Euphie (instead of just slapping him) uncharacteristically punches Kururugi in the mouth and tells him to "Shut the fuck up!" Unknown to Kururugi and his Britannian masters, Euphie is by this time a secret supporter/fan of the Black Knights and is on the verge of defecting to the Soviet Union. In a foul mood, Euphie storms off. Just after this, the Battle of Shikine Island begins. The battle goes in the BK's favor until Kururugi is captured. Upon hearing Zero is on the island, Euphie grabs a unoccupied knightmare and races to Zero's last reported location with a now strong suspicion that Lelouch is Zero. With blinding speed Charmelle grabs her own unoccupied knightmare and chases off after Euphie.

Meanwhile Lelouch (as Zero) is trying to get through Kururugi's thick skull with no success. The moment Euphie and Charmelle reaches Lelouch/Zero's location, the nobleman arrives on the Avalon. Revealing himself to be Schneizel el Britannia. With a wave of his hand, the Avalon's Hadron fire on Lelouch and Kururugi. Unbeknownst nor care to Schneizel, Kallen, Euphie and Charmelle are also caught in the blast. Later on, Lelouch, Kururugi, Kallen, Euphie and Charmelle wake up on Kanime Island in sperate locations with no idea how they got on the island. Several things take place: Kururugi discovers Kallen is a Black Knight and attempts to arrest her, however due too her Spetsnaz training, she kicks his ass. Afterwards she ties him up with vines and leaves him to his fate.

Euphie manages to eventually meet up with Charmelle. Not to long after this, both girls run into Zero. Taking a gamble, Euphie calls Zero Lelouch. Shocked, Lelouch gasps and tells her she's mistaken. Watching his body language, Euphie realizes Lelouch is Zero and sates this fact. Lelouch knowing the Jig is up and that he can just geass Charmelle later, unmasks himself. Charmelle is totally shocked and asks what's going on. Euphie calmly explains that Lelouch is in fact Lelouch vi Britannia the former 11th Prince of Britannia and former 17th in line to the throne. Upon the revelation, Charmelle bows to Lelouch before both Lelouch and Euphie politely ask her treat them as regular people instead of royals. Lelouch then asks if Charmelle will keep her mouth shut. After some thought she agrees and tells them she'll allow herself to be watched just in case. It is here that Euphie openly defects to the Black Knights to Charmelle's complete shock. However she recovers and says nothing. What Euphie and Lelouch don't know is that she secretly supports the Black Knights. With the revelation of who Zero really is, her own defection seems immanent.

A day later, the trio run into Kallen. Due to their close friendship, Euphie isn't really that surprised Kallen is a Black Knight. The only thing Euphie asks Kallen is, does she know who Zero really is? Kallen looks conflicted, However Lelouch nods before taking off his helmet to state that both Charmelle and Euphie already know. Kallen merely nods before joining them on their search to escape the island. Unbeknownst to Kallen, Kururugi already escaped is confinement swearing to himself that he'll arrest Kallen.

Hours later, everyone (Kururugi included) reach a clearing. Not to long after this an argument ensues, however this is cut short due to V.V. activating the thought Elevator. In minutes the ground collapses underneath everyone's feet. A few minutes later everyone regains their senses only to discover a platoon of Britannian marines surrounding them. Kallen and Lelouch manages to escape with Euphie's help. Euphie quietly tells Lelouch to pretend to take her hostage within Charmelle's earshot. Nodding, Lelouch does so. Simultaneously Kallen disarms a Britannian soldier and takes his weapon.

Spotting the Gawain, Kallen informs Lelouch. Lelouch then 'manhandles' Euphie until he and Kallen reach the knightmare. Euphie manages to convincingly and purposely get in the Britannians line of fire without revealing her defection. After boarding the Gawain, both Kallen and Lelouch make their escape. After Lelouch and Kallen are gone, Kururugi rats Kallen out to the Britannians. Hours later, The Chinese Federation invades Japan via Atsushi Sawasaki.

December 20-23rd 2017- The Battle between Britannia and the Chinese backed Atsushi Sawasaki is devastating. Fighting between the two lasts for three days and only ends after the Battle of Fukuoka Base. Kururugi is sent in alone to deal with the threat. After a brutal fight, despite being outnumbered, Kururugi stands his ground and only survives due to the timely arrival of Lelouch and C.C. in the Gawain. The battle ends with Atsushi Sawasaki and the Chinese General Cao being arrested. Meanwhile Euphie brings up her Special Administrative Zone of Japan idea with Schneizel.

Schneizel likes the idea and says she should bring it up with Cornelia first. All the while smirking to himself. Later, knowing Kallen's cover is blown, Euphie sneaks out of the Tokyo Settlement and heads straight for Shinjuku. Once at the checkpoint, she asks the MP's to allow her entrance and asks for Kallen. They automatically contact Rias. Rias gives Euphie her permission as well as telling Euphie that Kallen is in her office. Before she passes through the checkpoint, one of the MP's gives her the thumbs up. From there Euphie makes her way to see Kallen.

Once Euphie meets up with Kallen in Rias's office, Euphie informs her, along with Rias and her girlfriend/lover Akeno Himejima about the SAZ as well as telling Schneizel about it. A look of horror passes between Rias, Akeno and Kallen. Concerned, Euphie asks what's wrong. With a look, the three girls then go into an explanation as to why the SAZ won't not only fail but why it's a bad idea for Euphie to tell Schneizel. Upset, Euphie begins to cry before stating she only wants to help the Japanese people. Euphie then promptly abandons the SAZ idea and asks her friends help in coming up with a better solution.

December 25th- 26, 2017- Emperor Charles plans of starting a war with between the EU and USSR come to fruition. Traitors in the EU military disguised as civilians detonate several high yield explosives in several locations across Slonim, including St Andrew's Church. Hundreds die. The perpetrators are arrested and their ties to the EU are discovered. The Soviet Government is furious and demands an explanation, however just as EU politicians are scrambling to figure out how to prevent a war. EU military forces launch a full scale invasion of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe called Operation Barbarossa II.

The invasion is broadcasted on international television. With this fact, the entire world is shocked to the core. No more is this apparent than with Marrybell mel Britannia. Within minutes of the invasion, Marrybell calls Kallen and asks if her mother can reassign her and the Glinda Knights to the warfront. Kallen is uneasy, however Marrybell snaps, "I am a soldier of the USSR, Britannia can go to hell as far as I'm concerned. In fact I think Emperor Chuckles and Shitzil orchestrated the invasion. Despite this, we are now at war! I will defend the motherland and Eastern Europe from these Euro bastards and I'll make sure I'll be there when they fly the Hammer and Sickle over Paris and especially the Eiffel Tower! Long live the Soviet Union!"

After these words, Kallen chuckles and jokingly snarks, "Yah, you and your desire to unite the entire world under the banner of the Soviet Union! Anyway I'll see what I can do Marry."

Kallen then gets in contact with her mother and tells her about Marry's wish. After a long discussion, Kallen's mom agrees, thus Marrybell and the Glinda Knights are shipped off to Eastern Europe the next day. While this is happening Both Germany and Switzerland officially declare their neutrality despite being EU members. Both stating: "We will not be dragged into a war instigated by Paris!" The Soviet Union and the Warsaw pact agree to respect Germany and Switzerland's neutrality. Paris is furious and demands both countries take part in the invasion or else. Worldwide political backlash erupts forcing Paris to stand down. Without warning, the EU launches ICBM's at the Britannian homeland and hit the Britannian cities of Corner Brook, Mount Pearl and St. John's Newfoundland.

With a now justified war, Britannia declares war on Europa United. With a smirk, Schneizel turns to deal with the Black Knights. (With Emperor Charles in on the plan), Schneizel declares the formation of the SAZ to the shock of the world. Schneizel's plan is to have the Japanese come to the SAZ where Britannian special forces dressed as Black Knights will commit genocide, thus the BK will not only lose their support, but the populace will instantly turn against them... or so he thinks. The core members of the Black Knights hold an emergency meeting with a disguised Euphemia li Britannia going under the persona of Rook. Later that night Euphie asks to see Kallen and Raynare. As soon as they meet with Euphie (unable to control hr feelings any longer) Euphie jumps Kallen and kisses her on the mouth. Shocked Kallen turns to Raynare, only to see her smirk and give the thumbs up. Shrugging her shoulders, Kallen gives in and begins having sex with Euphie. Raynare joins in as well.
